9:13 am
ran. allison writes in saying with childhood obesity, we have to be concerned. a doctor should make that determination and paula says no, she is way too young to think that way. someone has to be telling her that she is. how sad she need to eat and be healthy. this just breaks my heart. my prayers are with her. and again this is in response to a 6-year-old interviewed in the piece who is worried about her weight. if you want to share your two cents on today's hot topic we want to know what you think. tell us and head to the wmar facebook fan page and leave a comment and we will share more of those comments throughout the morning's show. of course this is an issue a lot of you are talking about and we wanted to know what the experts have to say. dr. steven crawford associate medical director for the center for eating disorders joins thus morning. it's a pleasure to have you in thanks for coming in. >> thanks for having me. >> you watch the story. what did you think? >> i think that certainly children are worrying about this at younger and younger
9:14 am
ages and it's unfortunate that there's such a focus on weight that it is scaring kids and scaring parents. and it's raising their airchght their child will be large and so there's a focus on their weight which is not a healthy focus. >> it's confusing because so much attention is put on stopping childhood obesity. the first lady has really made that her cause close to her heart. so, it's kind of a gray area because i think a lot of the images that children see on tv may pro-- maybe promote something too thin. >> our society has the idealation of the thin body type. the war on obesity really reinforces that idealation of a thin body type and takes away focus from a focus on being healthy and living healthy to focusing on what that number is on the scale and how can you be thin. >> the story we saw i. thought
9:15 am
it was interesting when they interviewed a panel of young girls and one girl said her mom goes to the gym because she thinks she is overweight and another girl said her teacher won't eat cake because she is dieting. is it a bad idea for adults and parents to be be talking about their own body issues in front of their children? >> well parents and teachers are role models for children, and srnl they appreciate their bod -- and certainly they learn how to appreciate their bodies from the role models this their life. if you go to the gym focusing on that you like to go to the gym because it makes you healthy and it's good for your body and you like the way you feel after you exercised as opposed to i am going to the jim because i feel fat and i need to lose weight. so, the motivation for going to the gym if you focus in on that you want to do it because you want to be healthy, not that you feel fat, really can help. >> what about it's at the end of the storeity reporter asked the mother are you worried it could turn into eating disorder
9:16 am
and that's your area of specialty. is that how it happens? is that a possibility? >> well, let me start by saying that eating disorders are biological in nature and that they are genetically inherited. so parents don't cause eating disorders. but the reality is that the body image and the appreciation for one's body is developed in one's environment. so parents can promote positive feelings about your body and help lay down protective groundwork so eating disorders don't develop. >> do you think 6 years old as that girl is is too young to be worried about her weight? >> i think any age is too youngto be worried about your weight because i think really, it's more about being healthy and people should be more worried or focused on how can i be healthy not how do i lose weight. diets don't work. they cause weight gain and it's better if people just focus on healthy living. >> before we go do you have other advice for parents because it's so tough in.
9:17 am
>> i think just helping kids identify what's positive for their body and what their body can do for them and how to appreciate their body and they are more than what that number on the scale is appreciating their values and appreciating their positive qualities. and learning to trust their bodies as opposed to trying to control their bodies. >> all right. great advice thanks so much dr. crawford for coming in. >> thanks for having me. >> good to see you. dr. crawford is with shepard prat. thanks for coming in. >> charley. >> thanks. news time 9:17. abc2 is working for you. you see them all your neighborhood this time year. kiddy pools. new studies show that small above ground swimming pools have taken a deadly toll on children's lives. the survey done by nationwide children's hospital in columbus ohio shows that drowning is one of the major causes for child death from birth to 12 years old in the kiddy pools. and the reason the children are
9:18 am
drowning is a lot of parents are not ready to be pool owners. rosie leftwich explains. >> reporter: it's not that hot so there's no swimming in grandma linda's pool. remember it is grandma linda's pool in her backyard. and on days when you get in grandma linda's pool in grandma linda's backyard you follow her rules or get clobbered. >> they don't run or jump into the pool and step in a bucket and step over the side. no wrestling or pulling feet out from anyone. there's always someone out here with them if it's not me, it's their aunt or mother. and there's always somebody here. to watch them. >> reporter: grandma linda runs a tight ship make for a safe summer but a study at nationwide children's hospital says small pools are big killers of small children. from 2001 to 2009 children
9:19 am
toyed in portable backyard pools some with less than 18 inches deep. in most cases they were there- attended. >> i don't think they look at wading pools and shallow pools as a toy rather than as a situation that is ripe for disaster. >> reporter: professor bake rear vealed the ohio study and says -- reviewed the ohio study and says many people with pools don't prepare for the worst. >> more than 80% of the cases nobody tried cpr. no one was doing cpr when the rescue squad arrived and by the time the rescue squad gets there, it can often be too late. i think anyone who has a home swimming pool ought to feel obligated to know how to do cpr. >> reporter: baker says adult supervision is paramount and securing the pool with a fence and cover is a key to keeping children safe. and being a little like grandma
9:20 am
linda doesn't hurt. >> we make sure they are never unsupervised in the pool. it's too many accidents that can happen and i don't -- i don't want to see anything happen to them. >> that was rosie leftwich reporting many we have more on how to keep your kids safe around pools and other bodies of water. go to abc2 news . com on the right side of the home page and we have a spotlight section that is where you can find safety tips recommended by the centers for disease control. news time is 9:20. it's the first day of summer and many of you have dusted off the grills. coming up in a bit, the latest in grilling gadgets that will make you the star of your next cookout and make the food something all of your friends will remember. that's next when "good morning maryland at nine returns.
9:21 am
9:22 am
9:23 am
thanks for joining us on this tuesday morning. grilling is a summertime tradition. but having a few cool gadgets for the job somehow seems to make it more fun. >> yes becky has done the research and found some of the best summer new grill gadgets that are going to make you the star of the barbeque. >> reporter: who doesn't love to fire up the old barbeque and
9:24 am
grill? but first do you have enough propane to get the burgers cooked? >> the grill gauge cost about 10 dollars. but it works like a charm. hook, lift, look. >> reporter: now for the food. do you like shies kabob but hate the mess and how the pieces fall off the end? well try the fire wire coil. you string string the meat and veggies along the wire and coil it up to preserve space on the barbeque, and you serve. easy. now cooking steak to order is a tough job. but the steak button takes some of the guesswork out of it. no temperatures to remember but it tells you rare, medium or well-done. perfection. another grilling issue lights or lack there off. the magnetic light claims to stick on tools and light your grill. the problem i found was that the magnet was not strong
9:25 am
enough to actually stay put. it ended up falling into my food. this light is one grill gadget you can skip. one more product i do love is more for the table than the actual grill. but this is a cooling salad bowl. place the base in the freezer. make the salad and then to keep it cool, put the frozen base on. also great for take with you since it has its own lid and serving spoons. becky worlly, abc news, oakland california. >> i will be honest i don't spend a lot of time around the grill but the gadgets i think do you need them? >> you don't spend time around the grill? >> no i will eat anything on the grill. >> it's like church. it's like church to go raw meat open flame the thermometer. you have to have the thermometer and make sure the temperatures is good but the light. >> no high tech stuff. >> no way. >> i was speak of grilling and we heard it time and time again. it cab good way to cut -- it
9:26 am
can be a good way to cut down on fried food. it's good for the waistline and you think healthy right? >> times but not always it can cause a problem for you health wise sometimes. we will explain coming up in bit. first day of summer hours away. what will we expect on this day? high temperatures about 84. we hit 70s yesterday. and we will try to give above the mark with a little sun screaming out this afternoon. nowhere near the record of 100. it might feel like it with the heat and humidity building in. officials start time for summer 1:16 and we will have the forecast for the rest of the week including that u2 concert tomorrow night. could get stormy. stick around more coming up in a bit.

now "good morning maryland "at nine. 9 clp 21. this morning the food and drug administration unfailed the final nine health warnings about the use of tobacco product. graphic images below here are going to appear on every pack
9:30 am
of cigarettes sold and they will be in advertisements in the u.s. the fda is doing this in an effort to try preventing children from lighting up and getting others to quit as well. you will see the changes beginning next september. it's 9:29 and today is the first day of summer. justin what time does summer officially start. >> 1:16. >> there you go. a few hours away but we will fire up the grill for great barbeque to celebrate. we hear about how grilling food is better for your waistline but what you are cooking and how you are cooking it can make a huge difference. this morning we want to welcome in danielle from the cancertreatment center of america. thanks for this. and thanks for the information because a lot of people will go to the grill and go right to work. guys especially won't they? >> that's correct. thanks for having me this morning. >> sure. now tips with this, because we want to make sure to do it well because grilling is a great thing especially during the summer. so really getting a start off what are things we need to keep in mind? >> the biggest thing is when you grill, you are thinking about processed foods that are
9:31 am
something that we don't consider when grilling but it's something that is common. offer here hot dogs and sausages. hot dogs and sausages are two of the most common processed food. >> and people don't see it as processed foods but it's components of other meat. >> correct. part of the processed food process is when you are smoking or curing meats or adding saltpreservatives when you add preservatives it can cause chemical compounds leading to a increased risk for cancer patients. >> okay. with this we are keeping in mind we are not saying dough eat the hot dog just don't eat the package. >> well, actually we do -- the recommendation for processed foods in general are actually trying to minimize them completely. use pairing -- sparingly as possible there's no recommended amount when i work with cancer patients i typically work them into avoid processed meats. >> so avoid processed altogether but you touched on the next tip you can have some
9:32 am
red meat but don't go crazy. >> with the red meats as we have, steak, or hamburgers they are two of the most common. with the red meats we want to work on portion control. 18 ounces a week is recommended. but the best thing is to try to avoid too large of a portion in one day. so trying to avoid red meats more than 3 or 4 ounces at a time. >> what's the alternative. >> mostly you can do chicken, another one is actually over here salmon is a healthier choice to grill it well as long as you don't overcook it same with chicken all the things even the meats so anything that is chicken seafood your red meats or processed meats because we overgrill them or cook them too much is when we get into trouble as well. we want to be careful. >> going into that because we can go crazy on the grill maybe things are too warm and we get distracted but you say don't char your food. >> that's correct. what we are finding is research is showing there's a chemical compound produced with the
9:33 am
charring of food or overcook at high temperatures. that's called hda a compound formed through the muscle and when it is overcooked at high temperatures. >> one of the things you didn't mention i want to ask about because a lot of people may go with the alternative for the red meat with turkey sauceage or turkey burgers is thatting something you can have as an alternative? >> it is. watch what kind of to turkey you are look for when you get a turk -- looking for a turkey burger. the lean earth better but you want turkey breast something that is whiter leaner meat because if you can get turkey burgers that are more of the dark meat and you want to look for the turkey breast ground meat so it's whiter. >> turkey breast ground meet meat. >> yes. >> thanks for your time. during the grilling season, we will have this on the website abc2news.com. coming up in about an hour. megan. >> thanks so much. now we want to go back to
